The Literacy Council of Manatee County is a non-profit that has made its mission to help adults improve their English skills through one-on-one volunteer tutoring.   This assistance is offered to native English speakers as well as people encountering English for the first time.

Blue Sky worked closely with the council throughout the years to market its cause and rebuild its brand.  At our initial meeting, this non-profit had lost its board of directors and was undergoing a restructuring through their key supporter, the United Way.  Blue Sky sat on their newly formed board and assisted with a web site rebuild and launch to promote their cause to the community.  In addition to supporting their web presence and hosting, Blue Sky also worked closely to assist with their strategic planning, fundraising events, newspaper and television advertising, and grant writing.

Blue Sky worked closely with the Literacy Council’s executive director to come up with creative fundraising endeavors that would spark local community involvement.  Some of the highlights included 3 successful years of the Adult Spelling Bee, the annual Read-a-thon party, and a published anthology of writings and poetry by students of the Literacy Council.
